* Description

You will meet the sad history between 2 Koreas.

D.M.Z.(Demiliterized Zon)is the only divided country in the world. After the Korean War (June 25, 1950), and negotiated and then designated the DMZ [demilitarized zone] 2km away from the truce line on each side of the border. As one of the last relics of the Cold War, the DMZ attracts a great deal of public interest. DMZ tourist sites have been created to quench peoples’ curiosity on this unique area where tension and peace coincide. These sites are especially popular among foreign tourists.
This is a very special tour destination in , which offers a real vivid eye-opening experience of the Korean War and a dramatic sense of the tragedy of the separated family members between the two from the division of the peninsula. The 3rd tunnel is only 44 kilometers or less than an hour drive from Seoul and was discovered in October 1978. It runs through bedrock at a depth of about 73 meters below ground. Capable of moving a full division per hour plus their weapons, it is evidently designed for a surprise attack on Seoul.

- Imjingak Park: The place is built for separated families remained in South Korea from the Korean War.
- DMZ Theater & Exhibition Hall: Please get a chance to see what happened in Korean peninsula during the war.
- The 3rd infiltration Tunnel: The proof of sad history between 2 Koreas…
- Dora observatory: Get a view of North Korea from the highest point of South Korea.
- Dorasan station: The last train station and the first train station toward North, made by our strong willing of reunification.


Imjingak Park
Imjingak, located 7 km from the Military Demarcation Line, is now at the forefront of tourism related to the Korean Conflict.
It was built in 1972 with the hope that someday unification would be possible.
Three-storied Imjingak is surrounded by several Monuments, Unification Park and North Korea Center.
400 kinds of photos and documents showing the stark reality of North Korea are displayed in the North Korea Center of Unification Board. Outside Imjingak, there are 12 kinds of tanks and crafts on display that were used during the Korean Conflict.
Mangbaedan, which stands opposite of Imjingak, is famous for the place where people from North Korea visit and perform ancestral rites by bowing toward their hometown every New Years Day and Chuseok. The Bridge of the Freedom, South Koreans crossed when they came back to their mother country from North Korea, stands behind Mangbaedan.
In front of Imjingak, there is the Gyeongui Train Line which was destroyed during the Korean Conflict in 1950. It has been under construction since 2000.
Every year many events for unification are held at Imjingak.
Imjingak is now one of the famous tourist spots for foreigners in Gyeonggi-do Province because it is possible to visit without going through any security check points.


The 3rd Infiltration Tunnel
The 3rd Tunnel was discovered on October 17, 1978. It is located 52km from Seoul.
Approximately 10,000 soldiers can move through this tunnel in one hour.
When this tunnel was discovered, North Koreans insisted steadfastly that it was made by South Koreans to invade North Korea, but this proved to be false.
Mt. Dora Observation Platform is located nearby the 3rd Tunnel.
From this observation platform, North Korean military personnel are visible, and so are the city of Gaeseong and the Geumgangsan Diamond Mountains.
